Bernie Sander’s presidential campaign has released a four-minute video of the daughter of Eric Garner, an unarmed man who died after being put in a chokehold by a white police officer in July 2014.
In the ad “It’s Not Over”, Erica Garner remembers the death of her father and says she believes Sanders is a protester and isn’t scared to go up against the criminal justice system.
Eric Garner died in New York City after an officer put him in a chokehold while arresting him under suspicion of selling single cigarettes.
A friend of Garner recorded the incident on his phone, Garner is heard saying “I’m minding my business, officer, I’m minding my business. Please just leave me alone. I told you the last time, please just leave me alone.”
Garner repeated “I can’t breathe” 11 times as four officers restrained and pushed him to the floor. Garner lay motionless, handcuffed, and unresponsive for several minutes before an ambulance arrived. All of this was recorded on video and publicly available.
Officer Daniel Pantaleo was the arresting officer. A grand jury decided not to indict the officer who strangled Garner to his death.
